Microsurgical reconstruction of maxillectomy defects with free flaps is the best reconstructive option, being the osteomyocutaneous flaps as the gold standard. Although with limited rehabilitation, good functional and aesthetic results are to be expected with myocutaneous flaps. The existence of an algorithm facilitates the classification and systematization of maxillary reconstruction. However, due to defect complexity and large number of reconstructive options, a perfect solution does not exist. The individual assessment of the patient and the defect always provides the best method for the reconstructive planning, mainly when choosing free flaps. Level of Evidence: Level IV, therapeutic study.
